Alright folks. If you couldn’t tell by how soon I’m doing a review for this shit, I’m pretty excited for it. Why? Because this shit is black! Nothing more exciting than some funky colored pomade! Which is why I love Sweet Georgia Brown.
Now. For those who can’t figure it out on there own, this shit will STAIN EVERYTHING. And by everything, I mean your jackets, your sheets, your tan Frenchie, whatever. It’ll stain it. And I wonder why… BECAUSE IT’S BLACK! So be forewarned!
And for the cats with girlfriends or wives, hopefully she’s grown an understanding for your hair products, or tolerates it. Because if you get this gunk on her blouse or dress, you’re gonna have some problems on your hands. And for those who don’t care what their ladies think, well… They won’t stick around long enough anyways, so you’ll be able to stain as you wish.
On with the show.
Now… If you see this, you’ll think that it’s in a black plastic canister. WRONG. The canister is clear, and the wax is pitch black. So it’s hard to miss it. Plus, it has bright yellow text around it. It’s like when there’s a hornet around, you can just know it’s there. (Too corny? Oh well.)
And as it reads. BEESWAX. It is not a pomade. And hey, some fellas prefer to use wax instead of pomade for their hair, so why not? Wax is a little harder to mold into your hair, without heating it up (while in your hair,) with a blow dryer. There is no way you’ll melt it evenly, unless you stick it in the oven. And I’m sure you don’t want to do that.
This stuff is black, because it’s meant to be used for people with dark hair. Or for the older cats, to hide the grey hairs. And for those of us with black hair who’ve used a non black wax, you know how it fucks up your hair. You’ll look like you’ve stood in a dandruff snowstorm for a few hours. So this stuff won’t look all flaky in your hair, making it look good and very matte.
And if you guys think this will spread on clear. HAH.
Yeah, shit’s pretty cool, I think.
Blondies Need Not Apply. Unless you want black hair, of course.
This stuff is thick. Not overly thick, but thicker than Murray’s Superior. Which means you’ll have a very stiff hold. As I’ve said, unless you use a blow dryer to melt it, it’ll be very hard to mold your hair. Unless you like 45 degree angled pomps. But for the rest of us who like full, flowing pompadours, you gotta melt it.
There is absolutely no sheen with this stuff, whatsoever. And for me, I need the sheen. So I applied a very little bit of Dax in the purple tin, which in turn also softened up the wax a bit. Not a bad combo if I do say so myself.
Luckily, my lady just bought us some black pillow sheets. So I’ll be able to hide this shit for a little bit longer. But I don’t think I’d be using this stuff everyday. Not that it’s a bad wax, but it’ll stain the fuck out of your shit. Which is never a good look.
Here’s the end result, without the Dax in it.
Not too shabby, just a little tough.
For those looking for a good alternative to High Life Voodoo Brew, this is the stuff… Voodoo Brew is just a dark version of High Life wax, to hide the flakes. And that stuff isn’t the cheapest. So with this shit being $3.99 give or take, I’d say it’s worth the switch. Plus, your wallets will love ya.
Overall, not bad. Not a black pomade, but still pretty cool. A great alternative to High Life Voodoo Brew, and shouldn’t be too hard to find.
Hope ya’ll enjoyed this review.
